champs and finalists

        Elias O'Hollaren joined an elite club, while Daniel Rios doubled his title total, in terrific JBT So Cal Conference action at El Cajon's Parkway Bowl.

        Nathan Tidball, who did his GCU signing ceremony at the start of the event, did his future Antelopes proud with a 171-166 grindout win over Justin Erickson in round one of the scratch stepladder finals.  The semifinal game against Avery Domaguin was a classic that ended in a 219 tie.  Avery one the rolloff 10-9 on the second shot to advance to the title match.

        It's rare for a JBT event to be so dominated by exactly two people, but that was the case here with Domaguin and top seed O'Hollaren.  Avery grabbed the qualifying lead after a front-9 game four, but Elias grabbed the lead (and the U17 subdivision title) with a head to head win in game six.  He held on after eight games by just six pins, with both 200+ pins over third place Tidball.   It was thus appropriate they they played a high-scoring, tremendous title match.  A fourth frame 4-9 put O'Hollaren behind, but all he did from there was strike out.  Avery stayed right with him, needing a tenth frame strike to win, but a stubborn 10-pin denied her, and the 244-238 final made Elias just the 54th bowler all-time to reach an amazing 10 career JBT titles.  In addition to the runner-up performance, Avery qualified 304 pins higher in Girls Scratch than runner-up Lindsay Greim, and avenged her loss yesterday to Greim with a win today, AND won the day's ball from title sponsor Brunswick and its brand family!

        The handicap division once again proved that any age can and does do well with us, as 12 year old Anthony Garcia beat 9 year-old phenom Caden Sham 218-207 to begin the stepladder.  'Old man' 14 year-old Daniel Rios then beat Garcia 240-221.  Another 9 year-old, top seed Neel Kankariya, watched his big brother Jai win yesterday's title at Surf, and tried to make it a family double with the win here.  Rios had other ideas though, firing a big game to beat Neel, earning his first singles and second career JBT title with the victory.

        Big thanks to John Balla and the whole team at busy Parkway Bowl for their usual smooth hosting job.  Want in on all this fun and excitement for all ages and skill levels?  Just check out our schedule and come on down!
